This volume consists of refereed research articles written by some of the speakers at this international conference in honor of the sixty-fifth birthday of Jean-Michel Combes. The topics span modern mathematical physics with contributions on state-of-the-art results in the theory of random operators, including localization for random Schrödinger operators with general probability measures, random magnetic Schrödinger operators, and interacting multiparticle operators with random potentials; transport properties of Schrödinger operators and classical Hamiltonian systems; equilibrium and nonequilibrium properties of open quantum systems; semiclassical methods for multiparticle systems and long-time evolution of wave packets; modeling of nanostructures; properties of eigenfunctions for first-order systems and solutions to the Ginzburg-Landau system; effective Hamiltonians for quantum resonances; quantum graphs, including scattering theory and trace formulas; random matrix theory; and quantum information theory. Graduate students and researchers will benefit from the accessibility of these articles and their current bibliographies.

#### Readership
